With the add-on Simple CMS installed and enabled, your X-Cart store can provide a "Terms & Conditions" page for your store visitors. By default, a link to this page can be found on the storefront in the site footer menu.

Technically, the "Terms & Conditions" page is a content page. Like other content pages, it can be managed via the Pages section of the Admin area (Content -> Pages).

Initially, the "Terms & Conditions" page contains dummy text:

Before you make your store available to visitors, you should edit the dummy content of the "Terms & Conditions" page, replacing it with your actual terms and conditions statement. See:

Note that the add-on Simple CMS allows you to have full control of this page:

  3. Edit the page details and content as you require, as described here.

  4. Click Save or Save & Close at the bottom of the page to save the changes.
